Organizational Structure: General Manager at EA

Nick Earl, Arcadia Kim and Erin Turner, Electronic Arts

Nick Earl, General Manager of Electronic Arts Redwood Shores Studio, talks about how the General Manager’s job is to run one of EA’s six studios, which are the places where they actually build the product. The GM administers and manages the portfolio of products at the site. Each product is then run by an executive producer. The executive producers are entrepreneurs in their own right and the products are managed almost like independent ventures.
